I was trying to make the point that not all calories are equal because the body handles them differently.

A calorie is the amount of energy needed to heat a gram of water but 1C, or about 4.2 joules of energy if we're talking SI units. Saying the body handles calories differently is like saying water heated to 100C scolds your skin differently depending on if it was heated by a microwave or a kettle.

So let's say I do no exercise and eat 5,000 calories of burgers a day, will I gain more weight than if I drank 5,000 calories of booze instead? Where does the 5,000 calories have to come from in order for me to not gain weight? Or will I gain weight regardless because the "calories in vs calories out" theory is not a myth after all?
